    Sunday, November 20th @ 1 pm
    SE Powell and 122nd

    Please join us for a vigil and walk to remember the many victims of traffic violence we have lost on Portland's streets.  We will begin at SE Powell and 122nd for a silent vigil and remarks, followed by walking tour of infrastructure changes. Planned by Families for Safe Streets, BikeLoud PDX, the Street Trust, Oregon Walks and PBOT Vision Zero team.
    The advocacy focus will be making sure Oregon DOT follows it Blueprint for Urban Design to keep vulnerable people who walk and bike safer.

    You can let us know if you are coming here.



    Member Drive Update

    We have extended our membership drive until this Friday, November 18th! Help support BikeLoud as a subscribed member and enter for a chance to win a new Tern HSD provided by Splendid Cycles. Only $5 per month or $30 for a whole year!

    With your ongoing financial support and donations, BikeLoud PDX can better advocate independently, without being beholden to corporate or government interests. Currently we are 100% volunteers, so our advocacy is limited to the spare time that mothers, fathers, professionals and so many kinds of Portlanders spare to make BikeLoud happen. We are looking to 2023 with elevating our 501(c)(3) with paid staff to help our organization reach new limits!

    We will announce the winner this Friday November 18th at 2pm at Splendid Cycles after our ride from 26th and Powell. See ride details above. Hope to see you there!
